Ridge Trail is a 2.4 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Elkridge, Maryland that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Horses are also able to use this trail.
This is a great short trail loop if you are pressed for time. Even the kids wouldn’t get boarded. The Rockburn Loop (PURPLE) itself is a fairly flat well used trail. The access to Ridge Trail (ORANGE) connector (Water Bars) is a short walk up River Rd. from the parking lot at the playground. The Ridge Trail section is a bit of an uphill incline but is truly easy for all. Well marked. I recommend you taking the kids on this trail. Well maintained trail which places you on the top edge of the ridge. You will see deer in this section. I think they can read the NO HUNTING signs.
really enjoyed this hike last Friday. Trail is well marked and easy to follow. Many offshoots to extend the hike. Great views of the valley.
